grateful for the assistance of our fellow and neighboring law enforcement officials. since yesterday, we've been assertive in our efforts to identify, locate, and arrest the perpetrators. our uncompromising search has led us from door to door throughout the brunswick glen county geographical area. with the assistance of the glen county school board captain's police, we are checking the attendance and absentee list of individuals fitting the description as possible suspects. we are aware that there is some speculation being circulated throughout the rumor mill. however, let me assure you, as i previously indicated, that we are thoroughly investigating this case, and we will not, i repeat, will not, leave any stone unturned. thank you. >> is sherry being considered a suspect? >> we're not at liberty to discuss the intricacies of the investigation, as it could possibly damage it. i'm sorry, one at a time. >> you said there was a witness that saw what happened. police have said there are no witnesses. what can you tell us about that. she said somebody, a neighbor, called 911 and saw these tw

president bill clinton, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is not accurate. i have asked jeffrey toobin to explain this. >> all we can say is that president clinton believes it was a mistake and whatever justification he had in 1996 was not good enough, and he, like virtually the entire democratic party now, repudiates it and they want to see it overturned. >> this is not a thumb's up or thumb's down decision, right? this is the supreme court, and so what are we looking at here? >> well, this is a bit of a rubik's cube, and both the defense of marriage act case and the challenge to proposition 8, the case that the law that bans same-sex marriage in california. the defense of marriage act case refers to the federal law that says that the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it is legal. so people, and gay people who are married in new york and new england and all of the states where it is legal, they cannot file joint tax return, and they can't get social security survivor's benefits and if the court up

law in chicago. karen, welcome. this case is a real life nightmare. really. we always say a parent's worst nightmare, it's a cliche. this really is. the woman we heard speaking, sherry west, says two boys approached her as she pushed her 13-month-old son in a stroller. one boy pulled a pistol, demanded money. he shot her and then her son. the little boy is dead. mom is recovering. karen, no weapon found. no eyewitnesses. will this make it hard to charge and convict the suspects? >> of course it will. all the studies have shown that eyewitness identification is very, very unreliable. however, jurors believe eyewitnesses. how could you mistake that person? how could you not have recognized the person who had a gun in your face. we know that about 70% of all de dna convictions that are overturned are are overturned with two or more eyewitnesses. that's not going to stop the prosecutors from charging or stop a jury from convicting. i think it's a problem. >> we were talking about the new york rabbi killed and on an eyewitness convicted the wrong man. they let him out of jail this week.
people. and there's a way to do this without rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law, without rewarding them for cutting in line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so those who came here legally who paid the fines, who waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there's a way to do this. and i would call it earned legalization status. >> let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, could it be that congress might actually get a little something done here? how close are lawmakers to coming up with an immigration reform plan that everyone likes or can agree to? >> i sense your skepticism because it's hard to accept congress is going to accept something. i do think, not to be polly anna here, i think you see movement on that front. there's a gang working on this in the senate. chuck schumer came out yesterday and said they are making a bunch of progress. you see republicans in opinion polls moving to where a slight majority of republicans now support some kind of immigration reform. you see the self-int
laws are involved. we'll have to wait to see what the attorney general is looking at. >> thank you, paul. >>> more now on that daring prison escape in canada. police have three people in custody including one of the escapees and reportedly they have the other one cornered. let's bring in paul dagla, live in montreal. what is the latest on the standoff right now? >> as you mentioned, to know, police at this hour telling us that second escapee that from prison has been cornered or they have him surrounded. they are negotiating with him. they have three men, three people in custody, the other escapee and two others who apparently worked with these escapees to get them out. >> how could something like this happen, escaping from a helicopter, inside a prison? >> reporter: it sound like something from a movie really and has many people here in canada, in quebec baffled. what apparently happened one, perhaps two accomplices got a helicopter pilot, somehow forced him to fly over this prison fairly low, apparently. someone was able to drop down a ladder, a rope, and those two inmates were a
. and that's fine, but they can't, under ohio law, threaten to kill someone. and we had to take action. >> it even goes further than that. it's just so dreadfully obvious, to most people who are watching right now, that you just don't do this. you just can't do this. it's morally wrong, it's reprehensible, it's illegal. and we thought we had a teaching moment yesterday when we saw the process. we watched it all unravel throughout the last two days. is this really the state of the union among kids today, or is this an aberration, what these two girls allegedly have done? >> well, you know, my wife and i have eight children. we have now 19 grandchildren. i don't know that this is the, you know, certainly, it's not where every young person is today. we know better than that. but i do think, and what i said sunday is, if we think this is a steubenville, ohio, problem, we're wrong. rapes like this, very similar to this, that arose out of a social setting, occur every friday night, saturday night, and other days of the week, not just in steubenville, but across this country. and we do have t
wrote, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is in fact imcompatible with our constitution. he said, back then it was less of a condemnation of legal marriage and a bit of legal maneuveri maneuvering. i asked jeffrey toobin to explain that. >> all we can say for sure is bill clinton thinks it was a mistake to sign doma. he wrote an op ed a couple of weeks ago saying whatever justification he may have had in 1996 wuntd good enough. and he, like virtually the entire democratic party, repudiates it and wants to see it overturned. >> this isn't a thumbs-up or thumbs-down decision. this is the supreme court. what are we looking at here? >> this is a bit of a rubik's coupe, the defense of marriage act and the case of proposition 8, the ban that prohibits same-sex marriage in california. the federal law says the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it's legal. so people -- gay people who are married in new york and new england and all of the states where it's legal, they can't file joint tax returns or get
had an opportunity that is mr. sandusky to testify in a court of law where he's under oath and subject to cross-examination. he opted not to do that. and so to do something self-serving now is another matter. but as to the other issues coming forward, you know, whenever you're talking about a cover up at the highest level, it's a matter who have knew what when. i don't think he has nuch creen credibility, that is sandusky, to weigh in, but there is also civil proceedings that are ongoing and i think ultimately it's in the school's interests to dispose of this, dispose of it quickly and on get the good name back that penn state and the students who go there deserve. >> i'm glad you brought up the civil, as well. it's not just outstanding criminal issues. and millions of dollars at stake. the two of you say put if you would for me. because coming up, another big case by the name of amanda knox. thought you were done? no way. $4 million in book advance money later, and after being set free, an italian supreme court may want that young woman back in country to face murder charges all over
guns sold in states with weak gun laws are all too often found crossing state lines and are used to commit crimes elsewhere. so we really need national leadership in washington if we're going to stop the scourge. thankfully, there has been some encouraging progress. for example, last week, the senate judiciary committee voted in favor of a number of >>s, including a measure to expand background checks to private gun sales, which is how some 40% of gun purchases in the nation are made. more than 6.5 million gun sales during 2012, alone. there is no question that if this becomes law, it will keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them. it will reduce violent crime. it will save lives. we know that's true, because in states that already require background checks on private sales, the rate of women murdered by an intimate partner armed with a gun is 38% lower than in states that don't have such background checks. the rate of firearm suicide is 49% low peer. and the rate of firearm assaults, including attempted murders, is 17% lower. there's no doubt requiring backgr
you so much for being with us. we begin this morning with the battle over reforming our gun laws. vice president joe biden is speaking out and refusing to back down from a proposed assault weapons ban. the vice president spoke to npr about the need to limit large capacity magazines too. >> in newtown, those 20 beautiful babies and six serious people trying to help them, administrators and teachers, all dead, today. the police responded in 2 1/2 minutes. 2 1/2 minutes. this guy had 30-round clips in it. if that had been only ten rounds, who knows whether one or two or five or seven of those people would be alive today. >> or he could have just reloaded and loaded another magazine. >> that's not true. that's not true. because he reloaded with 30-round clips and that's as far as he got. just do the math. >> the vice president continues his message today. he and new york mayor, michael bloomberg, will speak next hour. they'll be joined by families from newtown, connecticut. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti is outside the event in new york. good morning, susan. >> reporter: good m
the toughest laws in the country. look at the crime and how it's gone down. and some of the people are saying on the side of stopping this practice, hey, which one is it here. or is it other factories that have nothing to do with stopping people. what they're also saying is you're replacing one crime with another crime. because for go to somebody that's innocent of a crime, a high school student on his way to school, and frisk them and search them, it has a terrible impact in and of itself is a kind of crime. >> this not only would have ram if i indications for new york city, but other cities. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well.cit. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well. would this ruling have ramifications throughout? >> it will. and the reason is the only time the courts look at the degree that police go too far is when there's a prosecution for a crime. in other words, john doe is charged with a crime and he's searched and his lawyers say it was illegal and it's reviewed by the courts. here the courts will look at cases where nobody is prosecu
, the law gives you a certain age upon when you can't consent. when you're 13 years old, you don't have the legal capacity to say, okay. even if you do say it's okay, the law says you don't know enough, and therefore, it's not okay. >> ryan, just like in steub steubenville, social media is playing a part in this, some say revictimizing the alleged victim here. here's one of the tweets, even if it was all his fault, what was a 13-year-old girl doing hanging around with 18-year-old guys? tough on the victim. >> yeah, it does. you know, it gives them a sense of what really happened. they are going to investigate and look into everything and social media gives them certain leads. when you see comments like that, you say they don't understand what happened here. as joey said, that 13 year old cannot consent. they are not at the age where they can consent. it's not about hanging out with somebody, it's about the fact these young boys, if, in fact, they are guilty, should not have done this. >> let's talk about the culture of athletes, especially football players. what does it say about the cu

shooting that everybody thought was going to lead to some kind of big change in gun law in this country seems to be losing a lot of steam right now, suzanne. and it does not look like there's going to be any kind of ground breaking legislation at this point. >> and we know, tom, that there's a battle of course that's taking place. you have new york mayor michael bloomberg who's using a lot of money essentially to promote gun control. and the nra is pushing back at this. where does that stand in terms of the showdown between the mayor and this lobbying group? >> as i was saying a minute ago, i think what you're really seeing right now is, i won't say panic, but there's certainly an urgency on the part of people like bloomberg saying something must be done now. because even though the public opinion polls favor some kind of control, that's been eroding a little bit. and we know whenever you have one of these big events and there is a surge in support, the more you get removed from it, the more time passes, the less that support is there. and the simple truth is even though the president u
